Psalm 26

 

Of David.

 

 

1                    Vindicate me, O LORD, for I have led a blameless life; I have trusted in the LORD without wavering.

 

2                    Test me, O LORD, and try me, examine my heart and my mind;

 

3                    for your love is ever before me, and I walk continually in your truth.

 

4                    I do not sit with deceitful men, nor do I consort with hypocrites;

 

5                    I abhor the assembly of evildoers and refuse to sit with the wicked.

 

6                    I wash my hands in innocence, and go about your altar, O LORD,

 

7                    Proclaiming aloud your praise and telling of all your wonderful deeds.

 

8                    I love the house where you live, O LORD, the place where your glory dwells.

 

9                    Do not take away my soul along with sinners, my life with bloodthirsty men,

 

10               in whose hands are wicked schemes, whose right hands are full of bribes.

 

11               But I lead a blameless life; redeem me and be merciful to me.

 

12               My feet stand on level ground; in the great assembly I will praise the LORD.
